FEATS OF SWISS SOLDIERS.

While all the European countries
whose boundaries extbnd to the
'backbone" of Europe have divi
sions of their armies composed of
,roops trained especially for manoeu
vres among the mountains the Swiss
soldier probably excels all others as
in Alpinist; nor is this strange, says
the Scientific American, when it is
remembered that practically all of
this little republic is situated in the
icart of the Alps, and much of it is
ibove the cloud line.

At the end of the glissale each soldier

ire absolutely necessary, but iII ad
dition to these appliances they must
carry rifles, possibly haversacks as
well, thus making the ascent even
more difficult and perilous.
Aq may he imnagined engineering
work from a military standpoint
forms a most important part of Al
pine tactics. One work of tile en
xineer is the construction of pontoon
bridges of suitable size and strength
to permit the passage not only of foot
soldiers but of cavalry if necessary
tind even of field artillery. When It
is reme'mbered that the mountain
streams of this country are notable
for their swift current and the rapid
rise and fall ini the volumne of wvater
it wvill he recognized that the task of
engineer is far more arduous and haz
ardous than in the lowlands where the
streams to b)e crossed have compara
lively little velocity.
Bridge building however, is a p)art
of the manoeuvres frequently carried
out. The pontoons, mere flatboats
are arranged obviously according te
the strength of the current and the
depth of the water. At times it is
necessary fo place them but a few
feet apart, but if the current is no0t
too strong they are anchored at dis
tanees ranging from ten to fifteen
feet of each other, the bows, of
course, p)oi1ting upstr'eam, soeurely
anchored by heavy weights. As fast
as the pontoons are secured longi.
tudinal timb)ers are laid across them.
These ''b)alks'' are secured in place~
by rop)e lashings made fast to cleats
in the pontoons sometimes by means
of bolts or pins which can be quickly
The beams average about five
ichecs in thickness and are maude of
seasonmed ihnhber so that they are not
affected by dampness of the wveather.,
Uponi t.bem is p)laced the flooring of
thme bridge, consisting of planks1( rang
ing from one inch to one and one-half
inches in thekness and measuing
about a foot ini width.
Tt is a fact that no nails whatever
arer used in fastening the planking to
the beams, the fastening being done
by rope lashing, so that the super
structure of the bridge can b)e taken
apart immediately after the troops
have crossed. Side rails, laid along
each end of the flooring and lashed
directly to the pontoons, act as a rein
forcement to the strength of the
Such a bridgo will support a wveight
of at least 100 pounds to every square
foot. The width depends upon the
size of the stream and th'e number of
men, b)ut usually the Swiss lpridges
do not exceed ten feet in "'idthu, per
mitting, the passage of' in.aastry in
columns of fours, as well as batteries
and field pieces drawn by horses.
The pontoons are also utilized inde
pendently of bridge work for cross
ing the mountain streams, especially
in moving artillery. The gun is de
tached,from the carriage, and the
equipment loaded aboard the boat. A
squad of artillerymen then man it,
and the horses for drawing the gun
carriage and caisson are forced to
swim across being held by some of
the men in the pontoon.
Thus the Swiss soldier is drilled not
only in Alpine work, but as a water
man, for it is frequently necessary to
cross rivers at points where there are
no permanent or temporary bridges,
and the use of the oar is as essential
as the use of the alpenstoek.
